Hi there. My name is J.T. Yost, and I'm a life-long unabashed animal enthusiast. I'm willing to bet you are as well. 

In an effort to appeal to varied aesthetic tastes and personalities, I offer three distinct styles of pet portraiture: traditional oil paintings, hand-carved block prints & peculiar anthropomorphized portraits in inks & watercolors. 

Please feel free to contact me at jtyost@gmail.com for more information!

 

BLOCK PRINTS: You may choose from pre-existing block prints OR commission a customized print. I will work closely with you to determine color choices and overall design, and I will give suggestions for providing me with the best possible photograph of your pet from which I will work. 

TRADITIONAL OIL PORTRAITS: Executed using artist-grade oil paints on gessoed canvas (of your size choice). I will work closely with you to determine color choices and overall design, and I will give suggestions for providing me with the best possible photograph of your pet from which I will work. 

"PECULIAR PET PORTRIATS: Executed using artist-grade inks and watercolor paints on 100% rag archival watercolor paper (of your size choice). I will work closely with you to come up with an appropriate scene to memorialize your companion animal. This may be based on your pet's personality, what you envision your pet would be like as a human or even your own personality or career. I will also give suggestions for providing me with the best possible photograph of your pet from which I will work.
